COVER 



The restoration of the University Bell was one of three 
gifts from the Class of 1940 to honor their Fiftieth 
Reunion. 

The Wysong and Miles Foundry in Greensboro cast the 
clapper and cradle. Molten steel, heated to over 2,000 
degrees in a four- ton furnace, was poured from a 
crucible into a sand mold. 

Members of the Class of 1940 aptly bestowed their 
attention to the restored bell throughout Reunion 
Weekend.

Reunion 1990 



Taken by Surprise 




Class of 1925 



Left to right: Florence Throneburg Miller, Thettis Smith Hoffner, Carolyn McNairi/. 



Funmi how it's those little things 
that can take you by surprise at 
your college reunion — those things 
that were once so familiar when this 
campus was your whole world. 

Like the doorknob to your old dorm 
room — you turned it ever so sloioly 
late at night ivhen you thought your 
roommate might be asleep. 

Or your favorite oak tree on front 
campus — an old friend who gave 
shelter as you struggled to decode 
your Frencli assignment. 

And those cracks in the sidewalk in 
front of North Spencer — the ojws 
forming the shape of your initials. 
They're still there. 

Seeing these things agaui takes you 
by surprise when you return for 
Reunion. You hadn't expected this 
unceremonious affirmation of your 
past experience here. 

Wliat you are prepared for are the 
schoolmates who, like you, have come 
to Reunion to feel something special. 

And then you see the slim, know- 
ing smile of your best college friend, 
ami you're taken by surprise again. 
That smile hasn't changed in all these 
years. 

Last May, more than seven 
hundred alumni came back to campus. 
And each one can tell you about those 
funny little things that took them by 
surprise at Reunion 1990. 



Class of 1930 




by Edna Grantham Scabunj 

I'm always glad to be back in 
my hometown, and this reunion 
was a very special occasion for all 
of us from the Class of 1930. 

Lib Barnett Williams did a 
wonderful job arranging our 
celebration. She now lives in the 
Abbottswood Retirement Commu- 
nity in Greensboro. 

Mary Proctor Paxton taught for 
thirty-four years near Gilbert, SC. 
Her three daughters taught there 
twenty-five years each, and her 
granddaughter taught there for 
five years. Mary figures her family 
has educated for about a century 
in South Carolina. 

Lib Thomas is planning an- 
other trip abroad. And this is the 
girl who said she'd attend our 60th 
"if I'm able." She's able, all right. 

Jean Harvey Williams arrived 
on Saturday with her sister, Murle 
Harvey Nelson '27. They had just 
returned from a grand tour of the 
United States. 

Sarah Daniel Vaughan reports 
that her daughter, who is on the 
English faculty at Mount Olive 
College, will be in England for a 
seminar this summer. 

Hooray for the School of Music! 
At our first reunion ever we had 
Geneva Phillips Parham (piano), 
Edna Grantham Seabury (viola), 
Genevieve Whitehead Matthews 




First row (left to right): Jean Harvey Williams, Geneva Phillips Parham, Elizabeth Thomas, Sarah 
Dniiiel Vaughan, Irene Hester, Ruth Sites Agnelly, Lib Barnett Williams. Second row: Ruth Dodd 
Morgan, Mildred Stratford King, Gen Whitehead Matthezi's, Minnie Calioon Taylor, Panthea Boyd 
Bowman, Mabel Holland Wright, Liicile Herman Harris, Anna Wilfong Fisher. Third row: Jean 
Hezvitt Bowsher, Frances Batte FoU, Margaret Scott Orr, Louise Turnage Eberhart, Frances Johnson 
Lewis. Mitchell Williams Hunt, Irene Ormand Simmons, Mary Proctor Paxton. 
Fourth row: Nancy Cray Watson, Edna Grantham Seabury. 



(public school music), and 
Frances Johnson Lewis (public 
school music). That's a good 
return. 

Irene Ormand Simmons 
reports that her granddaughter, 
a Guilford College graduate, is 
now deep in her work on a 
master's degree in biology. 

The damage done by Hugo in 
the fall of 1989 reached all the 
way to Bessemer City and 
destroyed trees on the property 
of both Genevieve Whitehead 
Matthews and Irene Ormand 
Simmons. 

It was so good to have Ruth 
Dodd Morgan's daughter with us 
at reunion. 



Frances Johnson Lewis lives at 
Heritage Oaks in Richmond, VA. 

Ruth Sikes Agnelly continues to 
give hundreds of hours of volunteer 
time to the Eastern Music Festival in 
Greensboro. She also takes school 
children on Bird Watchers lecture 
tours. 

Geneva Phillips Parham was 
honored at North Carohna State 
University when one of her former 
piano pupils nominated her for the 
"greatest influence in my life." 

Irene Hester, our faithful 
Greensboro librarian, was as 
gracious and charming as ever and 
glad she could be with us. 

For Nancy Gray Watson it was 
her first reunion ever!

Reunion Reports 



Class of 1935 



Willing 

and 

Still Able. 



by Anna Wills 

Twenty-three members of the 
Class of 1935 gathered to celebrate 
our 55th reunion. We all agreed 
that we had looked great at our 
50th in 1985, but that we looked 
even better now. 

After registering at the Alumni 
House on Friday, we hurried to get 
in line for the motor tour of the 
campus. We were astonished to 
see many new academic buildings 
where trees and grass used to 
grow, and that many of the old 
familiar buildings have been 
added to or replaced. A look at the 
names brought back fond memo- 
ries — Jackson Library, Forney 
Building, and Taylor (W.R.) 



Theatre, to name a few. High rise 
dormitories now loom on the 
horizon of Peabody Park, where in 
our day the only structure was the 
Y Hut. The dining halls look the 
same on the outside, but the inside 
is like the food level of a large 
shopping mall. Gone are the days 
when we dressed for dinner, sat at 
assigned tables with a counselor at 
the head, and engaged in improv- 
ing conversation. We shed a tear at 
the demise of our beloved 
Woman's Dorm. 

We were impressed with the 
new HPERD facility and Weather- 
spoon Gallery. In 1935 the "phys 
ed" department was housed in the 
relatively small Rosenthal Gymna-

slum, and there was no art depart- 
ment at all. What progress we have 
made! 

The major event for us was our 
class dinner Friday evening, when 
we caught up on the events of the 
last five years. In the absence of 
any of our everlasting officers, 
Helen Dugan Allen "presided." 
Grace was said bv Jane Powell 
Tudor. Our after-dinner speaker 
was Adelaide Fortune Holdemess 
'35, who has been on the Univer- 
sity Board of Trustees for a num- 
ber of years and who talked 
informally about the controversy 
between the Alumni Association 
and the administration. It brought 
on a lively discussion that reflected 
our interest and concern. 

Most of us spent the night in 
old Spencer, which, although 
recently renovated, still has 
bathrooms down the hall. Since 
there was no 10 p.m. curfew to 
send us to bed, we found ourselves 
talking way into the night. It was a 
happy time for all of us, and we 
were sorry there were not more 
who could come. Someone sug- 
gested that instead of waiting until 
1995 for our next reunion, it would 
be fun if all of us came back in 
May 1992 when the University 
celebrates its 100th anniversary. 

Our reunion weekend was 
planned and arranged by Helen 
Dugan Allen, Martha Lockhart 
Rogers, Alice Taylor Stanley, Anna 
Wills, and Edythe Ellis Wyrick.

by Grace Evelyn Lovmg Gibson 

Resplendent in lavender and 
white ribbon sashes reading 
"Three Cheers for Fifty Years!" 
members of the Class of '40 
marched into Aycock Auditorium 
again May 12, 1990, to a standing 
ovation. We wore the silk violet 
wrist corsages, made by Helen 
Gray Vestal and a friend, that 
served as our Friday night table 
decorations. 

Most of us could hardly 
believe that five decades had 
passed since 420 of us received our 
diplomas there. But we surprised 
ourselves by remembering most of 
the words of the College (now 
University) Song: "Dear Alma 
Mater, strong and great, we never 
shall forget/ the gratitude we owe 
to you, a never-ending debt." 

One hundred and seventeen 
'40 grads gathered to enjoy the 
weekend with a mixture of nostal- 
gia for those well-remembered 
days "run swiftly past," much 
delight in seeing classmates, and 
gratitude, not only for survival, 
but also for the Depression years 
we spent at Woman's College. In 
the midst of our joy, we missed the 
more than eighty of the class who 
have died and others who could 
not attend. 

Mary Cecile Higgins Bridges, 
our new Everlasting President, 
had triumphantly managed to 
locate all but one of the class 
before she became ill and was 
hospitalized in April. She sent lav- 
ender balloons and her beautiful 
daughter, Patti Bridges Soto of

Reunion Reports 



Myrtle Beach, SC, to greet us and to 
represent her, carrying the class 
banner "Altiora Pete" ("Seek 
Higher Goals"). Mary Cecile was 
recovering from abdominal surgery 
in a Greensboro hospital. 

Her young neighbors, Pat and 
Mike Carratello, wearing hardhats, 
dramatized a set of humorous 
verses Mary Cecile had written 
explaining how she wanted to 
disguise herself as a construction 
worker to break out of the hospital 
and join in the class festivities. 
Their clever rendition was the 
highlight of the class party in the 
Dogwood Room of Elliott Center 
Friday night. 

Helen Gray Whitley Vestal, 
co-chairman with Mary Cecile of 
the reunion planning committee, 
ably directed the proceedings with 
help from Alice McDowell Temple- 
ton, a member of the Alumni Board 
of Trustees; Marguerite McCollum 
Howe, chair of the class gift com- 
mittee; and nearly fifty other class 
members who helped with plan- 
ning the weekend. Our senior 
annual pictures, reproduced and 
framed in lavender rosettes, made 
delightful — and useful — supple- 
ments to our identification buttons. 
We had changed — and we 
thought not always for the worse 
— in fifty years! 

The class raised more than 
$18,000 in addition to presenting 
not one, but three, gifts to the 
University at the annual alumni 
meeting Saturday. First, class gifts 
were used to restore and repair the 
University Bell, which sounded for 
the opening of the State Normal 
and Industrial School on October 5,

1892. Remounted and refurbished, 
it was rung at the general alumni 
meeting Saturday and again by 
Helen Gray, as class representative, 
after the benediction Sunday, 
May 13, at the University's 98th 
Commencement to honor the Class 
of 1990. 



" This is a group 

where you don 't 

have to lie about 

your age.*' 

Second, the Ellen Griffin 
Fund, established in 1988 with an 
initial endowment of nearly 
$25,000, was increased. Contribu- 
tions of $640 were made at the 
reunion to the fund in honor of 
Mary Cecile. 

Finally, a sterling silver chain 
of office, designed by Carol Ann 
Morse, a jewelry designer from 
Winston-Salem, was presented to 
be worn by the chancellor of the 
University at ceremonial occa- 
sions. Each link of the beautiful 
chain is an individually cast laurel 
leaf, and the clasp bears the Great 
Seal of the State of North Carolina. 

A class record, prepared by 



the Alumni Office with a cover 
designed by Helen Howerton 
Lineberry, included a record of 287 
responses to requests for bio- 
graphical information from the 
class. Those who attended the 
reunion came from seventeen 
states. Dolly Koehler Reed of 
Hawaii, who recently retired from 
the math department of the 
University of Hawaii, came farther 
than anyone else to attend. 

Although we would not claim 
to have become the "Famous 
Women of '40" predicted in the 
class prophecy (written by Grace 
Evelyn Loving Gibson) and 
inscribed on the class reunion cake 
served with punch and champagne 
at the Alumni House, we have 
made contributions in professional 
careers, in nurturing families, and 
in a myriad of volunteer services. 
We have traveled and lived all 
over the world and devoted our 
energies to improving our commu- 
nities from rural North Carolina to 
Manhattan and abroad. 

Indeed, the record shows that 
in the words of the College Song, 
"Our motto 'Service' " was indeed 
"graven on each heart." Fifty years 
later, the Depression-bred Class of 
1940 would have made Mr. James 
Painter, Dean Harriet Elliott, and 
Dr. W.C. Jackson proud!

Class of 1945 



by Henriette Manget Neal 



The fleeting glimpse of 
another era was recaptured in a 
weekend time capsule as '45ers 
invaded the Faculty Center, 
claiming it as headquarters. 
Banners were raised, balloons 
bounced in the wind, and the 
American flag swirled out front to 
reclaim our place in time. The 
campus was bombarded with 
music from the '40s blasting from 
our stronghold. Seventy-two 
reported for roll call. We "Strove to 
Excel." 

Pat Fordham Myrick, on 
orders from Class President 
Dianne Page Bench, did a superb 
job rounding up a contingent of 
Greensboro volunteers, plus one 
Ramseurite, to adorn the ins and 
outs of headquarters. Class colors, 
front page newspapers, bulletin 
boards, and memorabilia 
abounded. Everyone was awarded 
a "Made in Texas" corsage fash- 
ioned by Dianne's loving hands. 

One highlight of the activities 
was a retirement farewell to 
Alumni Secretary Barbara Parrish. 
Two class members joined facultv, 
students, and friends in A Chorus 
Line salute on stage in Aycock. 
Sara Blanton Johnston "did her 
thing," and Henriette Manget Neal 
was accused of "hamming it to the 
hilt." Imagine that. 

Ruth Crowder McSwain 
charmed us with her "special 
delivery" at our class meeting. She 
called us survivors who must 
continue to profit from the past 
and be active role models in the 
future. The message, peppered 
with laughs, was well digested. 

Marie Tillotson Wall was 
AWOL, causing a 2400 curfew in 



the barracks at Mendenhall. A few 
extended the hour by raising toasts 
and declaring she was really on "R 
and R." If you were absent, like 
Marie, be assured that you were 
missed and discussed. We expect 
an "all-out" draft in 1995 — before 
the turn of the century — for our 
50th. 

Now you see it. Now you 
don't. The magic of the Class of 
1945 continues to turn up. There's 
one thing for certain. They knew 
we had been there, even those not 
present. Loving spirit always 
travels through time and space 



and comes together in our minds 
and hearts, making us one special 
class — united. 

And remembering with love 
and respect those members of the 
Class of 1945 who have died since 
May 1, 1985: Marie Bondurant, 
Pamelia Ackerman Brown, Mary 
Sharpe Dedowitz, Mary Burns 
Detgen, Mary Grier Epperson, 
Allene Grier, Nancy Cox Lee, 
Mary Bennett Mansueto, Lee

Reunion Reports 



Well, girls, it was just 
"mahvelous"! There were thirty- 
five of us present; several re- 
turned for the very first time since 
graduation. 

Here's the way the weekend 
went after we signed in and 
received our room assignments in 
Ragsdale Dorm; 

We put our things in our 
rooms, then headed to the Punch 
Party at the Alumni House. Brace 
yourselves, would you believe 
wine punch? — one drop of which 
would have propelled us out of 
WC when we were students. Our 
class collected unguarded chairs, 
hauled them all to a parlor, and 
had a mini-reunion there before 
we all went to dinner. 

"Dining Hall" and "food" 
have taken on whole new mean- 
ings at our school since we left, 
dear classmates. I mean, we're 
talking about shades of lavender 
on the walls, pretty wooden chairs, 
and delicious food! 

After dinner we went to our 
assigned meeting room in Elliott 
Center. We sat around in a big 
circle and had "Show and Tell" 
while we drank white wine and 
ate cheese and crackers! There 
were sad and happy stories about 
families and jobs and a unanimous 
agreement that grandchildren are; 
flawless, incredibly beautiful, 
precious and so sweet, change 
your life, more wonderful than 
you can imagine. 

We laughed a lot. We had a 
big laugh when Joyce Parker 
Robertson described her pleasure 
at once again enjoying a North 
Carohna spring. She said she tells 
folks in her New York town, "You 
know, just because you people can 



take off your boots, this does not 
mean you are having spring." 

We discovered that while we 
are still young (not to mention gor- 
geous), we're beginning to be a 
group of happy retirees or about- 
to-be retirees and/or married to 
men who are one or the other. 
We're also a group with other 
exciting lifestyle changes. We're 
starting new jobs or projects (paid 
and unpaid) and traveling or 
planning to travel in the near 
future. 

On Saturday we attended the 
97th Annual Alumni Association 
meeting in dear ol' Aycock. As you 
would expect, our class did not 
line up neatly in the lobby and 
march quietly into our seating area 
behind our marshals, but instead 
sorta straggled in a few at a time. 



found our seats, and started to talk 
and laugh. 

During the meeting a number 
of alumni, faculty, students, and 
friends put on a musical, A Chorus 
Line. . . Sa\/s Thanks, Barbara. It was 
a really fine tribute to our Barbara 
Parrish. 

Our very own Betty Crawford 
Ervin presided at the meeting, her 
last duty as outgoing Alumni 
Association president. She ended a 
very difficult job with her usual 
grace and competence and re- 
straint. She made us all feel very 
proud of her and left us all with 
this thought, "Life is what happens 
to you when you've made other 
plans." 

Hope to see you at our next 
reunion in five years.

Class of 1955 



by Barbara Roivland Hocutt 




At 6:30 on Friday evening 
the Class of 1955 congregated for 
our barbecue dinner in the 
Katherine Taylor Garden. Trick 
Gordon Beamer had prepared a 
bulletin board of pictures and 
articles taking us back to our years 
at Woman's College. Thirty-five 
years dropped away, and we 
bonded together, through the 
memory of our youth enjoyed at 
WC, to our mature lives scattered 
in location and diverse in experi- 
ence. 

Trick Gordon Beamer gave 
Moravian-style candles to each of 
us for our Christmas tree. At 
Christmas time as we use these 
candles, we will be reminded of 
our good time together at Reunion. 
Barbara Rowland Hocutt sold silk- 
screened T-shirts with the legend 
" '55/35 Arrived Alive" to com- 
memorate our 35th reunion. 

Peggy Crow Barham presided 
in the absence of our everlasting 
president, Deanie Chatham 
Calaway. Since, over the years, we 
had accrued a debt with the 
Alumni Association, she "passed 
the hat" for donations, and now 
our class is operating "in the 
black." 

Ellen "Petunia" Strawbridge 
Yarborough rescued the left-over 
pan of apple crisp and a cheese 
ball from the grasp of the caterers 
who were cleaning up, and the cry 
"on to Ragsdale-Mendenhall for a 
really good dorm party" galva- 
nized us. Too bad the "townies" 
had to go home. 

We all got comfortable and 
settled down for a good exchange 
of information. We basked in the 
warmth of friends remaining the 
same yet growing and branching 



out in fascinating ways. 

You "lost ones" who didn't 
attend the reunion — you were 
looked for. Don't be surprised if 
we "collect" you for the next 
reunion! We were forty-three 
happy, excited people, and we 
want you to share this wonderful 
time with us in 1995. 

Saturday morning we lined up 
at the Alumni House for the march 
behind our banner. We sang our 
class song marching into Aycock 
Auditorium for the Alumni 
Association meeting. My room- 
mate, Carole Sue Humphrey 
Roycroft, and I were late. That 
hasn't changed. These are the 
things that comfort us. 

The Alumni Association 
meeting was enlightening and 
distressing as the tug-of-war for 
control of the Alumni Association 



continues. A home-grown rendi- 
tion of A Chorus Line honored our 
beloved retired Alumni Associa- 
tion executive, Barbara Parrish. 

At our class meeting we 
decided to recommend that class 
representatives be sent to the 1991 
Centennial Celebration of the 
founding of the University. We 
will have our regular five-year 
reunion in 1995. 

We lined up for our pictures, 
tried to look younger, ate lunch 
together in Cone Ballroom, and all 
too soon said goodbye as we 
scurried off to our real life respon- 
sibilities once more — better off 
than after a session with a shrink! 
Gloria Weaver Fisher promised me 
she would try to age for our next 
reunion.

Reunion Reports 



"Celebrate." The lavender and 
white invitation to the 1990 
Alumni Reunion and the list of mv 
classmates were a source of 
curiosity and nostalgia. I had 
wondered whatever happened to 
the women in the Class of 1960. 
And what had happened to me? 
Why had I never made it to past 
reunions? Over the lavender 
balloon 1 resolved in ink: "Go to 
this." And so I came, fully aware 
of the hazards of reunioning after 
thirty years, especially the old 
questions of identity and change. 
One expects that personal identi- 
ties (personalities and disposi- 
tions) will remain sufficiently un- 
changed, but dreads that through 
other changes classmates will be 
unrecognizable to each other, and 
that our dear old WC, now known 
as UNCG, has become a brand 
new institution. 

Some of the forty-six women 
who answered the summons to 
reunite this year had attended 
reunions past, and at the Friday 
night party, there were old class 
photographs recording ever 
gracefully maturing smiles and 
airs of spirited meetings of faces 
not so unlike those in the 1960 Pine 
Needles. For the first-time reunion 
attendees, there was and is still 
more catching up to do, but as our 
time to reminisce together is so 
short and passes so quickly, we see 
we have to come back again. 

Despite detours caused by 
massive construction projects, just 
being on the (beautifully land- 
scaped but seemingly shrinking) 
campus, going through familiar 
rituals together as a class, spend- 
ing the night in Mendenhall 
(whose upkeep we found some- 



what neglected), dining together in 
the new dining hall and in Elliott 
Center, and attending the annual 
meeting of the Alumni Association 
in Aycock Auditorium was a lot of 
fun. 

Our class president Sandv Mar- 
golis Smiley savs: 

Our reunion makes us aware 
of a special kind of lasting friend- 
ship — one in which we easily 
renew relationships and "pick up 
where we left off" though we may 
not have seen each other for five, 
ten... thirty years! It was wonderful 
being with those of you who came. 
We missed those who didn't, and 
we look forward to seeing all of 
you five years hence. We would 
especially like to thank our "local 
arrangements committee," Mary 
Chisholm Patnaud, Sarah Fisher 
Pearlman, Lynn Carroll Haley, Pat 



"I just learned 

that I intimidated 

my roommate for 

four years. Oh 

well, she needed 

it:' 



McQuague Lackey (who got our 
classic T-shirts), Barbara Souther- 
land Griset, Martha Allen Thomas, 
and Marie Cardwell Harrill, who 
worked with the terrific staff of the 
Alumni Office to make our reun- 
ion so nice. Our special congratula- 
tions to classmate Ann Phillips 
McCracken, who was installed as 
the 65th president of the Alumni 
Association.

Class of 1965 



By Sue Medley 



More than forty of our class- 
mates returned to the campus for 
our Silver Anniversary Reunion. 
After campus tours, especially 
visits to the new or renovated 
buildings, we gathered at the 
Alumni House with all the other 
classes for a punch party. 

Elaine Bell McCoy generously 
opened her home on Friday 
evening for a delicious poolside 
supper. Our classmates not only 
enjoyed the beautiful setting, but 
they had time to catch up on what 
had been happening in their lives 
during the past twenty-five years. 
Our senior pictures from the Pine 
Needles were placed on badges to 
help us recall names and faces. 
They helped us see how little we 
had changed since 1965. 

Phvllis Shaw proudly carried 
our class banner as we marched 
into Saturday's 97th Annual 
Meeting of the Alumni Associa- 
tion, singing our class song. We 
were thankful that the words were 
printed in our class reunion 
booklet and that Judy Wolfe 
remembered the tune. We made a 
grand entrance after practicing 
only briefly outside Aycock 
Auditorium. 

Several of our classmates 
helped to give a splendid singing 
tribute to Barbara Parrish. Alice 
Garrett Brown, Brenda Meadows 
Cooper, Sarah Langston Cowan, 
Sylvia Eidam, Ahce Park Fair- 
brother, Jeannette Grayson Gott- 
lieb, and Patty Kisselbrack partici- 
pated in the program, which was 
written, directed, and produced by 



Judy Wolfe. It was a great send-off 
for Barbara. 

We had a brief meeting while 
waiting for the photographer to 
arrive for the class picture. Our 
Class of 1965 Scholarship Fund has 
continued to help deserving 
students; contributions to help 
increase the annual scholarship 
($200) will be gladly accepted. You 
mav send your check to the 
Alumni Association with your 
contribution designated for the 
Class of 1965 Scholarship Fund. 

All of us took a moment to 



remember classmates who have 
passed away during these twenty- 
five years. 

The Silver Anniversary 
Reunion helped rekindle those 
memories of a special period in 
our past. It was good to see 
classmates who had come from as 
far away as California or as close 
as Greensboro. Our University is 
definitely growing and changing. 
We look forward to returning for 
the 30th reunion to see what has 
occurred at our alma mater, as 
well as in our own lives.

Reunion Reports 



Class of 1970 



by Jackie Smith Dagenet 

"Make way for '70. We are the 
greatest. We're the best darn class 
at UNCG ..." 

And for two days in May, 
once again, we felt that this was 
true. Twenty-eight members of the 
Class of '70 met to renew old 
friendships and to make new ones. 
We immediately noticed that we 
were the most recently graduated 
class to be holding a reunion this 
year, and we all agreed that it was 
great going somewhere and being 
the youngest! 

We began on Friday by 
flipping through the name tags at 
the Alumni House to see who 
would be joining us. We had a 
delicious dinner in the renovated 
dining hall and discovered that the 
food had been renovated, too! We 
ate in small, quiet groups until we 
discovered classmates at different 
tables. Nothing else the entire 
weekend was quiet after that! 
What a delight to find friends and 
dorm neighbors ready for fun. 
After dinner, the Cone girls took a 
self-guided tour of their old 
haunts, accessed by an unlocked 
basement door. We were shocked 
to discover air conditioned rooms, 
but still no closet doors. Recent 
students have painted the rooms 
and halls to brighten up the old 
cinderblock walls. Everyone had 
her picture taken standing in front 
of her old door. 

At our class party Friday 
night, we enjoyed catching up on 
personal histories. Some of the 
group had traveled from as far 
away as Minnesota, while two 
were living within walking 



Hi! 

I don't remember

either. 



distance of the campus. Many 
members had earned advanced 
degrees, and most were engaged 
in "helping" professions. 

Saturday morning began with 
breakfast for those who could get 
up early enough. The rest of us 
met the group at the Alumni 
House before attending the 97th 
Annual Meeting of the Alumni 
Association. New arrivals joined 
the Friday group, and we marched 
to Aycock Auditorium under our 
class banner. All agreed that we 
were better preserved than this 
brown silk banner, which was 
green in 1970. 

The Alumni Meeting was 
poignant. We were moved by the 
procession of 117 members of the 
Class of 1940. Debbie Gough 
represented our class in an all-star 



salute to Barbara Parrish, the 
retiring Alumni Secretary. 

Our class picture was taken on 
the steps of Forney Building. Susan 
Banks Burdine, class president, led 
our class meeting in discussing 
plans for our 25th reunion in 1995. 
We held a moment of silence for 
those friends we have lost: Beverly 
Babcock Dodson, Deborah Dunn 
Hillard, Patricia Graham Moore, 
Margaret Senter, James Smyntek, 
Sallv Taylor Gooden, and Patsy 
Graham. 

Saturday passed quickly with 
the alumni luncheon, visiting 
friends, touring the campus, 
discovering the new, and revisiting 
the familiar. We said goodbye with 
strange feelings of sadness, joy, and 
anticipation of 1995. Hope to see 
you then!

An Alumni Chorus Line 




If you missed the 1990 Annual 
Meeting of the Alumni Association, 
then you missed a wonderful treat. 
Most notably, you missed the clever 
musical tribute to Barbara Parrish, a 
surprise performance featuring about 
fifty of our own alumni. In a knock-off 
of A Chorus Line, all the members of 
the cast were dressed Barbara Parrish- 
style: turned-down sailor hats, 
reading glasses, sweatshirts, 
A-line skirts, and Berkinstocks. It was 
a hoot. 

July Wolfe '65 of Raleigh adapted 
the lyrics and coordinated the alumni 
performers, with the help of music 
professor Bill Carroll and four mem- 
bers of the UNCG Show Choir. A 
"secret" rehearsal was held the day 
before to work out the choreography. 

Delightfully, a videotape of the 
Annual Meeting was produced by 
Lynne Temple '86. Lynne is currently 
working on her MFA in Drama, Film, 
and Video Production at UNCG. 

If you wish to own a copy of the 
videotape, contact the Alumni Office. 
The tapes are available for $10.

Alumni 
Distinguished 
Service Awards 



Alumni Distinguished 
Service Awards are pre- 
sented to alumni of the 
University loho have made 
significant contributions to 
the hberal arts ideal through 
service to others. 

The Alumni Service 
Awards Committee reviews 
nominations and determines 
which candidates will be 
recommended for considera- 
tion by the Board of Trustees 
of the Alumni Association. 
The Trustees make the final 
selections. 

Presentations of the 
awards are made during the 
proceedings of the Annual 
Meeting of the Alumni 
Association in May. 

The first Alumni Service 
Award was presented in 
1960 to Laura Weill Cone 
'10. In 1990 five alumnae 
join one hundred and five 
other recipients of the 
award. 




Kathryn "Kitty" Rettew Bregman '39 

Pinehurst, NC 

Kitty joined the foreign service 
of the U.S. State Department in 1946 
as an economic reporting officer and 
served embassies in AustraHa, the 
Philippines, and Brazil until 1953. 

She lived in Brazil from then 
until her recent return to North 
Carolina and was a member of the 
board of governors of the American 
Society in Rio, a member of the 
women's auxiliary to Strangers' 
Hospital, and on the executive 
committee of the Institute Brasil- 
Estados Unidos. She is editor-in- 
chief of Cooking ivith Ease In English 
and Portuguese, with the proceeds 
going to charity. 

In 1964, with an international 
group of women living in Rio de 
Janeiro, she founded an educational 
and philanthropic foundation, 
Fundacao Escolar Panamericana, 
which assists underprivileged 
schools in the state of Rio. Its reve- 
nues come from the sale of Fundacao 
Christmas cards and from contribu- 
tions. Yet it has constructed and 
equipped an auditorium and 
training center and provided library 
books, a dental clinic, and means for 
student excursions for thousands of 
poor children. 

For her outstanding contribu- 
tions to its people, Kitty was named 
an Honorary Citizen of the State of 
Rio de Janeiro by its legislative 
assembly in 1982, an honor never 
before accorded to an American or to 
a woman. 

We are pleased to join the inter- 
national community in honoring this 
distinguished "volunteer to the 
world." 




Donna Hill Oliver 78 MEd 

Graham, NC 

Donna is among North Carolina's 
and the nation's most distinguished 
educators. She has said that teaching 
means "believing that every child, 
every young person is capable of 
learning," and that it also means 
"making a contribution to society." 

She received her baccalaureate 
degree from Elon College in 1972. 
After teaching biology at Cummings 
High School in Burlington for thirteen 
years, she was still making her 
students desire to excel. In 1984 she 
had been chairman of the science de- 
partment at Cummings for four years 
and was named its Teacher of the Year 
and The National Science Association's 
Outstanding Biology Teacher. De- 
manding achievement from her 
students — and getting it — she was 
selected Teacher of the Year in North 
Carolina in 1986. 

In 1987 Donna became the third 
North Carolina educator to receive the 
crystal apple from the president of the 
United States, designating her Na- 
tional Teacher of the Year. She has 
traveled around the state and the 
nation exhorting teachers to take pride 
in their roles as educators and working 
to rebuild public confidence in 
education. 

An associate professor at Elon 
College in 1988-89, Donna is now a 
member of the faculty of Bennett 
College in Greensboro. 

We recognize Donna for embody- 
ing the spirit of service in education 
which is traditional at UNCG and for 
her dedication to learning through 
personal involvement.

Elizabeth Parker McPherson ' 51 

Yanceyville, NC 

This alumna has taken the 
learning she gathered from our 
institution, wedded it to her talents for 
leadership and organization and to her 
spirit of generosity, and has shared it 
with her community and with the 
world to relieve ignorance and hunger. 

Since 1965 Lib has been director of 
Caswell County schools' food service 
and nutrition education program. She 
is president-elect of the American 
School Food Service Association. 

At UNCG she was chairman of 
the Reynolds Scholarship district 
selection committee, president of the 
Home Economics Alumni Association, 
a member of the board of the Home 
Economics Foundation, and served on 
the School of Home Economics task 
force on standards for certification for 
child nutrition personnel. 

In 1989 she received Food 
Manngement magazine's prestigious 
Humanitarian Service Award. The 
award recognized her work in 
managing programs that benefit the 
elderly, poor, homebound, and 
retarded of Caswell County and her 
contribution to the Orange 
Presbytery's partnership with the 
Moujimayi Christian Health Center in 
Zaire, Africa. Lib has helped raise 
hundreds of thousands of dollars over 
the last thirteen years, to benefit the 
Center's work. The Center provides 
education, agricultural supplies, and 
technology. 

Inspired by the late Dr. Warren 
Ashby's belief in seeking the right 
choices in life, she works with in- 
tellect, energy, vision, and knowledge. 




Barbara Parrish '48 

Greensboro, NC 

The record is chronicled in the 
Spring 1990 issue of Alumni News. It 
is a record of thirty-four and one- 
half years of leadership and service 
to UNCG and its Alumni Associa- 
tion. 

Forty thousand of us have read 
the litany of progress of our Alumni 
Association since 1955. Every act of 
an Alumni Board, every step for- 
ward in progress, every successful 
project, every innovative idea, every 
effort in preserving cherished tradi- 
tions, and every plan for moving 
forward to meet today's and 
tomorrow's challenges has been 
imprinted with the mark of her 
influence. 

For the more than twenty thou- 
sand of us who graduated since you 
came, you are the Alumni Associa- 
tion. You have been our link to our 
alma mater. We left, but you stayed 
and kept it for us. 

You adjusted to make the man- 
date for co-education work, you 
gave a special welcome to our black 
alumni when our University was 
integrated, and you marched beside 
the bell and rang it to put us in step 
for a new kind of alumni homecom- 
ing fashioned for the 1980s. 

If the Distinguished Alumni 
Service Award has meaning, then 
surely its meaning is epitomized in 
this award to one who has every day 
and many nights lived her life of 
work for this Association resounding 
with "Our Motto Service Will 
Remain." 

We thank you for all the big 
things, for all the little things, for all 
the years of loving and caring 




Catherine Stewart Vaughn '49 

Montreal, NC 

Cathy obviously took to heart 
her class motto, "Rise to Serve." She 
describes herself as a homemaker, 
and she is the involved and commit- 
ted wife of the president of Mon- 
treat-Anderson College and the 
mother of two grown sons. She calls 
herself a professional volunteer, but 
she is more than that. She has been 
consistently active in her community 
on the Buncombe County Local 
Government Study Commission, the 
Red Cross Blood Bank, and the 
North Carolina Museum of History 
Associates. 

Her commitment to the work 
of the Presbyterian Church has led 
her to serve at all levels of its lay 
organization. She has been president 
of the Women of the Church of the 
Asheville Presbytery. She was 
national chair of Women of the 
Church and led in successfully 
merging Presbyterian women's 
organizations. She currently is 
chairing a task force on new church 
development. 

This recipient has remained 
involved in the life of UNCG 
through the Alumni Association. She 
served on the Alumni Board of 
Trustees from 1977-79 and again 
while president-elect in 1985-86. 
During 1981-84 she served as first 
vice president of the Alumni 
Association and chair of the Alumni 
Planning Council. She served as 
president of the Alumni Association 
in 1986-88. She is currently part of a 
team negotiating the relationship of 
the University and the Alumni 
Association.

Fifteen Years Out 

What do at least 6,800 people in 
Guilford County have in common? 
They're UNCG's local Young Alumni 
— that is, area alumni who graduated 
within the last fifteen years. 

And now they've organized a 
Young Alumni Council — a core 
group who hope to initiate and 
promote programs of interest to 
younger alumni on behalf of our alma 
mater. 

Although the leadership is local, the 
group's reach goes to alumni through- 
out the state and nation, not just in the 
Greensboro area. If you graduated 
since 1975, you'll be hearing more 
from this group. 

John Crawford '80 of High Point is 
the group's chair. Other officers are 
Karen Brown Ingram '83, chair of 
campus activities; Bob Nadler '80, 
membership chair; Cvnthia Moore 
Johnson '87, social committee; Sherri 
Carswell '84, public relations; and 
Tapp Wood '84, sports. All live in 
Greensboro, except Sherri, who resides 
in Winston-Salem. 

Coming together just last August, 
the Young Alumni Council already has 
sponsored a number of successful 
activities. Special events included a 
pre-game chili supper at the Spartan's 
basketball opener, a bus trip to the 
beautifully decorated Biltmore House 
at Christmas, and a dessert buffet with 
theatre tickets for the campus staging 
of the musical, Dreamgirls. 

Coming up later this summer will 
be a "Friday at Five" gathering of 
UNCG alumni at The Depot, 
Greensboro's former railroad terminal. 
"Friday at Five" is a series of social 
events co-sponsored by the Old 



Greensborough Preservation Society. 

The Young Alumni Council is in the 
midst of planning its fall events, 
including special activities at Home- 
coming, October 26-28. 

Want to join the Council? Contact 
Bob Nadler '80 in care of the Alumni 
Association, or call him at home: (919)

held on March 8th in the Assembly 
Room of the New Hanover County 
Courthouse. The UNCG Show Choir, a 
select group of twenty singers and 
dancers, provided lively entertainment.

UNCG alumni in the New York area 
had a triple treat on Wednesday, 
April 4: a reception, a play, and a 
dinner, all at different locations. The 
premiere performance of On the Edge

headed by alumna Frieda Boger Lane 
'44. (See more about Frieda in Class 
Notes.) Alumni were invited to a pre- 
performance reception hosted by the

October is for 
Homecoming 

Just as you can count on Com- 
mencement in May, you can be certain 
there'll be Homecoming in October. 
The 1990 date is October 27. Home- 
coming hoopla is well into the plan- 
ning stage, and — as is now the 
pattern — the fifth, tenth, and fifteenth 
class reunions will be a highlight. If 
you graduated in 1975, 1980, or 1985, 
you won't want to miss out on vour 
class party that afternoon. 

Students have dubbed the 1990 
Homecoming, "Blow-Out at The G," 
and the alumni have offered their 
subtitle: "Bring the Spirit Home." 
Students recently began calling UNCG 
"The G" for short. 

A picnic luncheon, the Homecom- 
ing Parade, the men's soccer game, a 
post-game bash, and other activities 
will make this the best Homecoming 
yet. 



First-Ever 
Greek Reunion 



If you were in a fraternity or 
sorority at UNCG and haven't 
received a special post card by now, 
call the Alumni Office — they are 
probably trying to find you! 



Looking Toward 2042 

As you know, we'll observe the 
University's 100th anniversary in a 
year-long celebration beginning in 
October of 1991. Plans are well under 
wav, ably directed by Dr. Robert 
Eason, professor of psychology. More 
than 100 alumni serve on the Centen- 
nial Planning Board. 

Until the celebration begins, there's 
one special way you can help. Just as 
the fiftieth year celebrants left us a 
"time capsule" in 1942 (to be opened 
during the Centennial), we wish to 
leave something special to open in the 
vear 2042 — when we celebrate our 
Sesquicentennial. The Library 
Committee requests your assistance in 
suggesting items that might be 
included. 

What do you think should he 
contained in the 150th Anniversary 
Box? The items must be somewhat 
small and, of course, nonperishable. 

Send your suggestions to Univer- 
sity Archives, Jackson Library, UNCG 
Campus, Greensboro, NC 27412. 



Harris Publishing Company, the 
publisher of our Alumni Directory. 
Please give the representative who 
calls a few moments of your time to 
verify your listing. To place a reserva- 
tion for a copy of the Directory, please 
advise the Harris representative 
during your phone conversation. This 
will be the only opportunity you will 
have to place your order for the book. 

Scheduled for release next Febru- 
ary, the Centennial Edition Alumni 
Directory promises to be the definitive 
quick reference of more than 45,000 
UNCG alumni. Don't miss the 
opportunity to be a part of it.

attention from the 1,000-plus alumni 
who were members of fraternities and 
sororities during the last ten years.

is designated by Greek letters — will 
be invited to special events throughout 
the Homecoming weekend, Friday, 
October 26, through Sunday, October 
28. The anniversary celebration will 
commemorate ten years of fraternities 
and sororities at UNCG.

ROM 



H 



PRESIDENT 



by Betty Crawford Ervin '50 

On Sunday, May 13, 1990, The 
University of North Carolina at 
Greensboro observed its 98th com- 
mencement. Approximately 2,000 
graduates joined the ranks of 
alumni of this institution. We 
welcome them to our midst and 
hope the years they spent here will 
have the positive influence on their 
lives it has had on ours. 

In the 1890s, shortly after 
receiving their diplomas, the 
earliest graduates of this institu- 
tion formed the Alumnae Associa- 
tion. For more than ninety-five 
years our alumni through this 
Association have served this 
institution (whatever tide it held), 
served North Carolina and the 
larger community, and served 
each other. We have been the 
guardian of its ideals and tradi- 
tions and have reminded it of its 
purpose. The respect this Univer- 
sity receives today is due in large 
measure to the respect its alumni 
have earned for it wherever they 
have lived and worked. The 
current leadership of your Alumni 
Association feels very strongly the 
responsibility which has been 
passed to us. We are dedicated to 
keeping their and our Alumni 
Association a viable organization 
with its integrity intact. 

As Association president, I 
have often felt the alumni leaders 
of earlier years looking over my 
shoulder — such individuals as 



Jane Summerell 

Laura Weill Cone 

Clara Byrd 

Laura Coit 

Julia Ross Lambert 

lone Grogan 

Virginia Terrell Lathrop 

Betty Anne Ragland Stanback 

and many, many others. And, yes, 
I have felt the eyes upon me of 
former leaders of this institution 
who actively encouraged and 
supported our Association — such 
leaders as 

Charles Duncan Mclver 
Julius Foust 
W.C. Jackson 
Otis Singletary 
James Ferguson 

These, who are no longer in our 
midst, are saying, "Don't you dare 
let our efforts go to waste! Don't 
you dare let this Alumni Associa- 
tion become meaningless!" 
You are all aware, I am 
certain, that for more than five 
years there have been major 
difficulties in relations between the 
Association on the one hand and 
Chancellor Moran and his admini- 
stration on the other. The Alumni 
Association has struggled to 
maintain itself and its functions. 
Untold hours have been consumed 
by these efforts, and the stress has 
been beyond belief. Since February 
mediation teams representing the 
two sides have been meeting once 
or twice a month in marathon 
sessions of six or more hours each 
attempting to work out our 



differences and reach an agree- 
ment both sides can accept. The 
Association team consists of Ann 
McCracken (incoming president), 
Susan Whittington (second vice 
president), Cathy Vaughn (imme- 
diate past president), and myself. 
The Chancellor's team includes, in 
addition to himself. Vice Chancel- 
lor for Student Affairs Jim Allen, 
Chairman of the Board of Trustees 
Michael Weaver, and Anne 
Heafner Gaither, an alumna and 
member of the Board of Trustees. 

I had so hoped to be able to 
report to you that an agreement 
had been reached, but unfortu- 
nately that is not the case. We have 
made some progress, but we still 
have a lot of work ahead of us. 
Both teams have agreed that 
confidentiality as to specific points 
under discussion is essential for 
the success of these negotiations. 
I will ask your understanding and 
tolerance. But this is my last 
message to you as your Associa- 
tion president, and I must share 
some general observations and 
conclusions with you: 

1 . We feel there is a sincere 
commitment on both sides to the 
resolving of these problems. All of 
us feel that the well-being of the 
University demands it. We have 
different viewpoints on what 
constitutes the good of the Univer- 
sity, but we are committed to the 
process of trying to reach a work- 
ing agreement. 

2. There is an increased recog- 
nition of the role alumni can and 
must play in the affairs of the 



18 



Alumni News 
Fall • 1990 



University. For example, there are 
now five alumni on the University 
Board of Trustees, instead of 
merely one or two alumni as in the 
past. The Excellence Foundation is 
moving toward including more 
alumni on its board. As president 
of the Association, I have been 
invited to Board of Trustees and 
committee meetings, a new and 
encouraging move. Input from and 
participation by representatives of 
the Alumni Association is being 
sought more often. 

3. The Alumni Association 
Board and officers maintain today, 
as they have from the beginning of 
discussions three or four years ago, 
that we cannot accept merely an 
advisory role. We have always 
been an organization that makes 
its own decisions, elects its own 
officers, plans its own programs, 
publishes its own magazine, and 
works with its own staff. We see 
ourselves as supportive partners 
with the administration in serving 
our University. We do not believe 
we can abandon responsibility for 
these functions and become mere 
advisors. 

4. It is becoming increasingly 
obvious that at least some giving 
by alumni needs to be redirected 
toward direct support of the 
Association. At the request twenty- 
five years ago by the university 
administration of that day, the 
Alumni Association relinquished 
its fund raising efforts and joined 
the University in a coordinated 
approach to giving. As a part of 
that agreement, the Alumni Asso- 
ciation budget has been funded 
from alumni undesignated gifts to 
the University. The attorney 
general of North Carolina has 



issued an opinion that monies 
given to the University, no matter 
what their source, cannot be given 
over to a volunteer organization 
free of university control. If we are 
to have any decision-making 
power, if we are to carry out our 
purpose and functions, you — our 
members — must be asked to 
redirect your giving to the Asso- 
ciation. This is not new money. 
You have been supporting the As- 
sociation with your gifts to the 
University. Now it will need to 
come to the Association directly. It 
may take the form of dues, of 
donations, or of something else. 
These decisions have not yet been 
reached. Stay tuned! 

I personally have one major 
fear in this regard. 1 devoutly hope 
merchandising and fund raising 
will not become the major focus of 
the Alumni Association. I trust our 
emphasis will remain on service — 
service to our members, to the Uni- 
versity, and to the larger commu- 
nity in which we live. This, after 
all, is why we are here. 

5. For the time being, manage- 
ment of the Alumni House is still 
ours. The taking over of space in 
the House by university offices 
and divisions seems to have 
peaked, and some House space 
which had been lost to us is slowly 
being returned to public use. 
Agreements as to who will be 
responsible for what are still to be 
made. But there is reason for hope 
here. 

6. Alumni Nezvs is still pub- 
lished by the Association. We are 
determined to keep it that way. 

When 1 became president, 1 
had high hopes of developing new 



programs and strategies enabling 
the Association to meet the needs 
of the changing body of alumni. 
We are a different group from 
what we were twenty-five years 
ago, and the opportunities for 
expanding our outreach are 
greater than ever. Of necessity, my 
time and efforts have been di- 
rected instead toward maintaining 
our Association and attempting to 
work out the problems we have 
faced. Someone once said, "Life is 
what happens to you when you 
have made other plans." It has 
been thus for me. 

The most rewarding aspect of 
my presidency has been working 
with wonderful people. This 
Association has within it warm, 
caring, supportive, intelligent, 
talented, dedicated people. My 
association with you has been one 
of the great experiences of my life. 
In addition, there is no way I can 
adequately express the thanks I 
owe to Barbara Parrish and to 
Brenda Meadows Cooper — and 
Miriam, Carolyn, Leigh, Laura 
(both), Traci, Mary, Marian, James 
— indeed, all the devoted Alumni 
staff, new and long term, part-time 
and full, who work so hard and 
get so little recognition. You have 
our appreciation and our love. 

When you are asked, "How 
are things going at UNCG? What 
is happening with the Associa- 
tion?," please tell all who ask that 
the UNCG Alumni Association is 
alive — and well — in Greensboro, 
North Carolina, and wherever its 
alumni are found! And we will do 
our best to keep it that way.

CAMPUS 




Like mother, like 
daughter 

Many children attend their parents' 
alma maters. But Rosalyn Fleming 
Lomax '67 and her daughter, Fleming, 
of Goldsboro have taken the affiliation 
one step further. Not only is Fleming 
enrolling in UNCG in the fall, but she 
is the first child of a Katharine Smith 
Reynolds Scholar to win the same 
award. 

A company member of the 
Goldsboro Civic Ballet, Fleming has 
danced and choreographed summer 
children's musicals for the local arts 
council and parks and recreation 
department. She spent her junior year 
at the North Carolina School of the 
Arts and is active in church activities. 
UNCG was the only university 
Fleming considered. She plans to 
double major in speech pathology and 
dance. 

Rosalyn is an English faculty 
member at Wayne Community 
College, who received her MA from 
UNC-Chapel Hill. She is co-editor 
of the writers' /artists' magazine 



Ri'nnissnnce and received the college 
Teaching Excellence Award in 1988. 

Rosalyn Lomax says "1 am 
gratified not only that Fleming has 
received the same honor and financial 
assistance and opportunity, but also 
that the mothering part of my life's 
work allows me to thank the Reynolds 
Foundation in a unique way — with 
Fleming." 



Retirements 

Six faculty members were honored 
in April at a retirement dinner for their 
distinguished careers of teaching and 
service to the University. All retired at 
the end of the 1989-90 academic year, 
except Dr. Eileen Francis. She left 
December 31, 1989.

A first for 
Weatherspoon 

A dozen senior art majors were 
honored when UNCG's first juried 
senior art exhibition opened in April at 
the Weatherspoon Art Gallery in the 
new Anne and Benjamin Cone 
Building. 

Works selected for the exhibit 
were paintings by Cathy Altice, Vernie 
Bolden, and Julia Blocker, all of 
Greensboro; Diana Light of Winston- 
Salem, and Doug Faulmann of 
Kernersville; sculpture by T. Brett 
Mullinix and Greg Podgorney of

Live! On stage! 

Some people have to learn 
life's lessons the hard way — 
through experience. And tJiat 
can be damaging and painful. 
But if you can learn by watch- 
ing a situation develop live on 
stage, it 'will he much less trau- 
matic — even entertaining. 
That's the premise behind Plays 
for Living, a Nexv York theater 
company whose dramas depict 
'1990s problems — drugs, teen 
pregnancy, motivation, AIDS, 
illiteracy, suicide. 

Executive director Frieda 
BogerLane '44 feels that 
"groxving up is much the same 
from generation to generation. 
Today's kids are dealing with 
the basics, but in terms of 
harsher realities. That's why I 
got involved with Plays for 
Living. " For almost fifty years 
the non-profit agency has por- 
trayed family and community 
problems through the tech- 
niques of professional theater. 
Discussions follow each 
performance, encouraging the 
audience to arrive at possible 
solutions or, at least, develop an 
appreciation for other points of 
view. 

Frieda, a Winston-Salem 
native, joined Plays for Living 
twenty-three years ago, after 
serving as a Neiv York City 
school ami community 
volunteer. Her vocation 
combines her interest in educa- 
tion with her love of the theater. 
" Wlren we go to a school to 
perform and we hear those 
students talking hack to the 
stage actors — knowing we're 
touching a particular chord is 
indescribable." 

Some of the plays have 
been commissioned as videos by 
corporations to be seen in 
communities across the nation.

Attention! Be culturally 
aware! 

Margaret Mayer Zartcan- 
ella '84, section commander for 
the 432nd Mission Support 
Squadron at Misawa Air Base 
in Japan, promotes cultural 
awareness in her unit. A US 
Air Force captain, she primarily 
serves as a personnel manager. 

Margaret is accountable for 
their training, fitness, disci- 
pline, and adherence to stan- 
dards. She sai/s, "I counsel, 
commend, and correct in order 
to maintain good order and 
discipline as a militan/ unit. No 
day is ever the same." She also 
tries to teach global citizenship. 

A history major, Capt. Zan- 
canella "can't believe I'm living 
in ]apa>i. It's one of those goals I 
liad but didn't expect to achie-oe. 
My adjustment to Japan's peo- 
ple and culture lias been rela- 
tively smooth because of the 
foundation I got during my 
undergraduate studies. Profes- 
sors like Dr. James Cooley and 
Dr. Roy Schantz helped me 
develop a global perspective and 
an appreciation for different 
adtures. Since I brief newly 
arrived personnel, I'm in a posi- 
tion to help them open their eyes 
to this nezv culture and their 
responsibilities as 'global 
citizens. ' " 

After graduating from Of- 
ficer Training School in 1985, 
Margaret zoas a section com- 
mander at England AFB (LA). 
There she met and married Bob 
Zancaneila, an Air Force 
structural engineer. He joined 
Margaret and their 18-month- 
old son at Misawa in May. 

"I'm on the threshold of 
where West meets East, and Tm 
thrilled to serve my country as 
one of her front line ambassa- 
dors," Margaret said.

BUSINESS 



Life ill the Alumni Office is veiy 
different these days, but — as usual 
— never dull. For me, coming to work 
each day is more than a little hum- 
bling. I have moved temporarily into 
the alumni secretarx/'s office which 
was "home" to Miss Byrd '13 for ten 
years, to Betty Brown fester '31 for 
eight years, and to Barbara Parrish '4S 
for thirty-four plus years. I sit at the 
newly-restored desk which first was 
Miss Byrd's. The aura of my predeces- 
sors in this office is definitely here — 
I just hope the wisdom comes with it! 

1 don't do this job alone. In 
addition to our valuable alumni 
volunteers, we are blessed with an 
experienced and dedicated staff who 
are most often behind the scenes. 
Carolyn James continues as the 
secretary /receptionist in the Alumni 
Office as she has since 1967. Leigh 
Tysor '88 is completing her second 
year in the Office assisting with all the 
clerical details that come with alumni 
programs, including the Alumni Tour 
Program. Laura Auman Pitts '74 is 
working with us on a temporary basis 
in alumni programming, and Mary 
Hicks Richards '89 joined us in May 
and is working with us in program 
support during this transition period. 
Two talented and energetic students 
have become members of the staff: 
Tracy Hudson '90, from Clinton, has 
provided invaluable assistance for 
three years; and Laura Lanier '90, 
from Greensboro, has served an 
internship in the Office this spring co- 
ordinating the upcoming first-ever 
reunion of the Greek organizations. 
James Bryant and Marian Motlei/ 
work daily to make sure the Alumni 



House is ready ami that it survives 
each day's activities. They are often 
joined by Arthur Lott in making sure 
the many special events held in the 
Alumni House run smoothly. 

Equally important during this 
transition has been your support and 
encouragement! 1 thank you, and 1 ask 
for your continuing support and 
involvement. Please say "yes" when 
asked to serve on a committee or 
attend an alumni event. If we have not 
yet asked, drop us a note and volun- 
teer to help. Opportunities abound! 
Wliether ive are planning an event in 
your geographic area, a reunion of 
your class, one of the many on campus 
and off campus events for the upcom- 
ing Centennial Celebration, or looking 
for conunittee members to carry on the 
business of the Alumni Association, 
we need your active involvement. We 
invite you to share your ideas with us. 
Tell us if you like something — and 
tell us if you think you might like 
something else. Wljen the time comes, 
we hope you will be willing to help us 
implement your ideas. 

Your continuing participation in 
alumni activities and events and your 
continuing support — support in all 
its forms — are vital to the future of 
our Alumni Association and our alma 
mater. 

This is your college home where 
you are needed and always welcome!
